We have another great week of shows this week at Bluelight!!!
2014 FALL BLUELIGHT SINGER/SONGWRITER WEEK #3
The legendary Bluelight has a legendary songwriter competition. Throughout the next 4 weeks we will have 36 individual songwriters from all over the states vying for a spot in our finale which will take place October 27th. Each competitor will be given the chance to sing two original songs they have written. Our celebrity judging panel will then narrow down each weeks 12 songwriters to only 4. After three weeks we will have our final 12 competitors. This is a great chance to see and hear many songwriters for the first time. The talent in this town is ridiculously awesome. Not as ridiculous as you not coming though.

“The Goners take no prisoners. Their style is impetuous. Their confidence is impregnable, and they are just ferocious. They want your heart. They want to eat your children.” —Mike Tyson
Randall King w/ Michael Leonard Witham & Justin Beiser
Lubbock’s Red Dirt Country artist, Randall King, grew up on the plains of west Texas in the famous town of Amarillo, influenced by artists both legend and new. Icons like Hank Williams, George Jones, Merle Haggard, as well as George Strait, Eric Church, and Wade Bowen influenced the writing of King.
Crooks are breathing new life into decades-old musical traditions, stripping away the polish and shine of modern radio country and replacing it with earnest songs about life, work and pain. Sometimes it’s weary and lonesome, sometimes it’s downright bleak, and oftentimes it’s just reckless fun. Suddenly, country music is dangerous again.
Stalling’s style is modern with a vintage feel. With Tom Lewis on drums and percussion, Bryce Clarke on nylon-string guitar, electric guitar and mandolin, and Jason Steinsultz swapping between stand-up and electric bass, Stalling creates a dynamic live show that’s smart, charming and as listenable as it is danceable. Stalling and troupe are equally at home on a huge concert stage in front of thousands or playing an acoustic set for a hundred. Attendance numbers at shows have continued to rise. “I chalk it up to the strength of the songs and the strength of my band”, comments Max.
